I have to dash, but I'll do one super-quick post. I have 100 positions – all of them short, none of them big.

Here's my favorite of those listed below – Acorda Therapeutic (ACOR) – If it can break below $30, I think there will be an immediate push lower to the $27 to fill the gap made back in May, which would provide a very nice return on your investment. 

Here are 11 Stocks Breaking Down.
